Venus Butterfly


Venus Butterfly

The Venus Butterfly is a fictional sexual technique which was first mentioned in an episode of the 1980s American television drama "L.A. Law" ("The Venus Butterfly," November 21, 1986). In the episode, a bigamist client claims to have a miraculously effective sexual technique, which he reveals to his lawyer, Stuart Markowitz, played by Michael Tucker. The technique itself is never explicitly described to the audience, though it is implied in a hotel bedroom scene that Markowitz uses the technique on his lover, the character Ann Kelsey (played by Tucker's real-life wife, Jill Eikenberry), with great positive effect. The writer of that section of the episode, Terry Louise Fisher, stated that she simply made it up, but the show received many letters and phone calls from viewers asking what it was, as well as two requests to license the term.

Law Reunion's Sexy Secret!", TV Guide, January 24, 2002.] ] As described by writer and sex educator Sue Johanson in 2005, the Venus Butterfly is a variant of cunnilingus. It involves using one's tongue on a woman's clitoris, using one's fingers on the vagina and using the other hand around the rectum, "even penetrating the rectum if that is pleasurable for her."

The 2006 book, "One Hour Orgasm: How to Learn the Amazing "Venus Butterfly" Technique" by Leah and Bob Schwartz is dedicated to educating readers on how to perform the technique. The book is mentioned in the film "Meet the Fockers" and in "Mad" magazine. [ [http://www.amazon.ca/dp/0312359195 Description of "One Hour Orgasm"] at Amazon.com, URL accessed August 6, 2006.]
